I'm starting to realize that I have a tendency to fear being wrong. I'm not exactly sure from where this uneasiness comes from, but I'm assuming it could have something to do when you're small, and your parents tell you you are wrong, and you fear being punished.
I'm trying to embrace more the concept recently that it's OK to be wrong. It's completely fine to make mistakes sometimes, or to be confused or misunderstand a situation. Since it's natural for human beings to err, it's actually fine to realize that your thoughts, understanding, or concept of an issue has been in error.
Of course, this is not to say to do what you knowingly believe is morally wrong. It just means that sometimes, it's completely fine that your previous understanding of an issue could have been wrong. These flawed understandings may also have led to less than optimal choices, decisions, and behaviors, and all that is needed is a calm courage to accept that your previous understanding may not have been the best way or the only way.
Throughout history, many people in various cultures around the world have clung on to their beliefs and convictions because they were unwilling to let go of their firmly-held beliefs. This has sometimes resulted in major clashes, as well as in a more minor sense, a less optimal way of living.
Another aspect of being told by others that you are potentially wrong is recognizing that perhaps it is only their viewpoint. It's, therefore, also possible for you to still believe in your own viewpoint while acknowledging that the other party's viewpoint could likely be equally valid, or could also be wrong.
In either case of whether your viewpoint is right or wrong, it's important to not let this fear of making mistakes or being wrong control your mind, your actions, or your life. It's helpful just to recognize it as another passing activity part of living - that it's OK to be wrong.
